Library

 

Welcome to the First UU Society Library!!!

 

Our collection of books and resources is intended to support your UU values and to help you and your family continue your exploration.

Whether you are: a Religious Education teacher, a new Unitarian Universalist, looking to go deeper into religious teachings, a parent looking for excellent picture books, or ‘simply’ a seeker of knowledge--we are the place for you!

 


 

Children's Collection

Our youth collection - picture books, reference books, young adult books, etc. is found in the First UU Society Library in the basement of the Meeting House.

The adult collection is available for browsing at anytime in The Parlors. Be sure to see the great collection of books about all aspects of UU life. Just follow the posted directions for checking out books and place returned books in the bag attached to the end of the cart.

Teacher resources computer

 

Teachers and group leaders-you are welcome to use this computer to do research for your Lifespan Education classes.

 

On Sundays,  the computer will be placed in the Community Room for access by teachers to search the FUUSB Library Database (Readerware) as well as the internet for resources and questions about your curriculum. This can also be used for adult programs!

Nearly all of our collection is entered into Readerware. When you find a book you want, look under 'Place' in the entry, and it will tell you where the book lives.

 

During the week, Dot will be able to give you access to the computer from its closet in the basement (most Thursday mornings the library committee is using it for work).

 

The library database is called Readerware and can be accessed from the Desktop page of the computer. Readerware can be searched by title, author, keyword and illustrator (these are under the series heading).

 

For help using Readerware, contact Lynn Douglas, herbalwoman@gmail.com to set up a tutorial.
